    Just a while ago Naughty Dog on its official blog said:

    "we won’t be able to update your profile back to your current level,
    cash and unlocks. Unfortunately, that means all affected players will
    not be able to check their progress towards the requirements for the
    Beta rewards.”

    The developer apologised for the issue and further added:

    "finding these kinds of issues early is (thankfully) what a Beta period is for.”

    “We know that losing your progress and not having an easy way to find out if you’ve hit the Beta requirements is extremely frustrating. We hope that knowing that your hard-earned progress to date has not actually been lost is some consolation,"
